Las Grietas, Puerto Ayora

4.2
Swim in crystal clear waters surrounded by craggy rock walls at Las Grietas. You'll find plenty of incredible nature on the path to the relatively hidden swimming spot, which you can reach by crossing a rocky lava field and walking by a cactus forest, before finally descending to the cool waters. Jump off the rock platform to make a splash, or grab your snorkel to check out the mysteries that lie beneath the surface. Don't forget to wear a pair of water-appropriate shoes, as the path can be extremely painful in bare feet. Put Las Grietas into our Puerto Ayora day trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Puerto Ayora.

  • It was a very informative walk and once here: the swim was amazing... I found this excursion to be well worth the effort to get here. A must when visiting Galapagos.  more »
